Book a Hotel near Guildhall

Built in the 17th century, the Guildhall is a building consisting of a large hall mainly where social and political events are held. The building was most notably home to the Saville Inquiry into events of Bloody Sunday in 1972. The building was almost completely destroyed by fire and bombings in Victorian times and has been restored into a beautiful building today that is one of the key attractions in the city. The stained-glass windows are predominantly the most talked about by Guildhall visitors, so talked about that the building has been previously featured in Lonely Planet as a top choice for notable buildings in Derry.

The main hall has a capacity of up to 600 visitors standing or 400 seating, perfect for conferences, civil ceremonies and corporate events. The Whittaker suite can also accommodate up to 60 guests, ideally used for meetings and intimate civil ceremonies. Both facilities are completely equipped with state-of-the-art sound, audio and lighting technology.

The Guildhall Square is the main square in Derry city and hosts many large events, such as Halloween carnivals, the switching on of the Christmas lights and the Foyle pride parade. The reconstruction of the Guildhall Square now reflects Derry’s metropolitan feel and contains seating areas, lighting, fountains and much more to make it even more of a positive experience for visitors.

Notably, the square was the venue for the opening ceremony in the London 2012 Olympic Games. In the near future, it is to undergo massive redevelopment to include many new offices, shops, restaurants and hotels to meet the demand of Derry’s increasing numbers of visitors.
